The Second of Four: “Bridge Messy, Emerge United”–a 10×10 Fundraiser for ArtVan
ArtVan https://artvanprogram.org/ has partnered with Frontier https://www.explorefrontier.com/about/frontier/, to host a 10 x 10 fundraiser. And I am one of the 100 artists who are creating a ten inch square (10×10) artwork inspired by one of four words: Bridge, Messy, Emerge, or United. Interestingly, my word, “Emerge” has been a rich prompt, evoking ideas and imagery which I’ve played with in Emerge 1, pictured below. ‘Bridge Messy, Emerge Ignited’ will be at Frontier in Brunswick from April 20 to July 16. In the meantime, you can follow the ArtVan Program on social media to learn about the participating artists and see their work in progress.
Third of Four–Mixing Mediums: Still Point Arts Quarterly
I’m delighted to have three of my mixed media tea bag collages included in Still Point Arts Quarterly, a print publication and online gallery. Mixing Mediums is a natural theme for me, as I love to work back and forth between collage and painting. Notably, the three artworks selected by Christine Cote for this issue are all from my Memory Series. They are Tea Tunes, House of our Foremothers, and Tea and Roses. And, if you want a preview, you can find them here in my Memory Series Gallery. https://robinbrooksart.com/objects-of-memory-mixed-media/
